Biodiesel Classroom on Wheels

Alabama A&M University, Department of Natural Resources & Environmental Sciences and the Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries, through the office of Commissioner of Agriculture and its Alternative Energy Unit, have reached an agreement to create an outreach program to expose, demonstrate and educate citizens of Alabama about proper procedures for producing high quality biodiesel on small scale basis.

The program designated as “Biodiesel Classroom on Wheels” is a mobile system which can be taken to different locations around the state to provide hands-on demonstration and training in the process of producing biodiesel using locally available feedstock. Widespread exposures to small-scale biodiesel have been achieved by displaying the unit at state fairs, cooperative extension meetings and other agricultural related events.
